2:40 am
capital the statue of the little. the most beautiful site is the city itself with its unique seaside location. this year british lifestyle magazine monocle and its editor in chief. copenhagen at number six it's ranking of the world's most livable. we look at copenhagen one of the things which i think has forced a bit of a stumble comes back to the connectivity public transport they've done a great job of course it is it the global home of the bicycle bike. most as wide as street lanes because copenhagen is one of the world's most bicycle friendly cities and cycling is part of everyday life the city has more bicycles on residence every second person writes a bike to work. for trash the traffic lights ease the waiting
2:41 am
until to trash cans were designed specially for cyclists. of course continues to succeed because they have the bicycle miracle in the city it is just so easy to get from a to b. to c. to z. . just by going around on two wheels or potentially three wheels if you have children it's an incredibly walkable city. just over half a million people live here copenhagen's moderate size makes it a pretty relaxed metropolis. the cityscape is characterized by architecture from the eighteenth century like a palace of the city residents of the danish royal family. classical residential and commercial buildings stand alongside modern constructions like the opera house new influences are. unmistakeable in the restaurant scene to. has experienced in the last five or six years such
2:42 am
a. respect to me is really right you know as is probably one of the most important to cities the world. cuisine began in two thousand and three when the restaurant opened here. with regional ingredients. was recognized as the world's best restaurant four times since then danish combining denmark's best cullen re traditions with dishes from. for example at the royal smoke cafe where little works about a created a tiny slice of bread. to eat sushi and all reminiscent of smear uproot the danish variant of the open faced sandwich. copenhagen success story. what we really like about copenhagen has started i mean it is your restaurant that means starting up your own shop it means launch your own fashion label doing things with your own hands and that's where the great thing is that you've seen
2:43 am
a lot of people coming back into the city who are not speculating they're not looking to build a business and then just flip it three years later for some crazy valuation they really want to be part of the urban fabric. all over the downtown area a little design shops like henry scuffs after studying in london he returned to copenhagen launched his own fashion label his designs have even been displayed in museums like new york's moma. copenhagen also stands for design classics like this manager which is still produced today in a hotel he designed you can even book a night in the on a young son suite furnished with the original pieces. the capital city of design and. itself has its share of planning mistakes of course. monocle magazine says that why copenhagen only made it to sixth place on this year's list
2:44 am
well the most livable city. we've seen extraordinary growth within the city a lot of new development but a lot of new development which is not very sympathetic to the rest of the built environment so quite buildings architecturally but we see a lot of buildings which have no relationship to the street. despite this criticism residents still regard copenhagen as europe's most pleasant capital. is so many people. really enjoying it there's always happy people and. in the summer time this is a special place to be monaco magazine says reducing the twenty five percent value added tax in restaurants would be yet one more way copenhagen could improve its already outstanding quality of life.
2:45 am
while i'm yet to visit copenhagen but it seems like a great place to go what do you think what is your favorite european city if you want to write in let us know then you will be in with a chance of winning this travels that the i pods at the headphones that kept the bag and everything that is inside it will be there as well is a fantastic prize and all we need to do to win it is fill in the entry form on our website don't call forward lifestyle time now for five facts that you probably didn't know and this week the trivia is all about musicians who have recorded the songs gemini has a high five. by famous songs you probably didn't know made in germany. disco queen screamed our way to the top of the european charts with a song. and that's
2:46 am
our number five because penny mclean was really get. an austrian bone singer who lived in munich she was discovered by a german songwriter and producer michelle. she was also part of disco group silver convention which landed two hits topping the us charles. brazilian sounds and sample rhythms the south american sounding some ahead some five million copies but looks can be deceiving. that's because somebody janeiro is a purely german production of its number for the kids you probably never guessed came from germany but the song really got people moving to the beat of the two thousand and eight european football championships there it was played after every girl's goal.
2:47 am

a crazy idea but today it's number two on our list of german produced hits the song became a favorite in the gay clubs scene and helped usher in the era of electronic music. an american artist crooning a german song in english that's the successful recipe for a top pick of five famous songs you probably didn't know were made in germany frank sinatra strangers in the night. strangers in the night. extreme doing glance was wandering in. the strangers in the night was a hit well one the music was composed by german orchestra leader bad camp felt over the years others claimed to have written a song but it's still credited to him originally background music for a film this song became the center of attention. oh i love that chuen sometimes they call it classic that applies to clothing as
2:49 am
well as to songs in fact traffic clothing items are always a good investment and for the skull that means kill it's like the traditional german laid a hose and most german men have wore one at some point and it's the same with the scots in the kilt when you talk to the one lady who has worked for forty years with the tata weaving mill and there's just so i had twenty thousand killed by hand my dad. kilts are fashionable and no one knows it better than elaine. she's been making the scottish tartan skirts for men since one nine hundred seventy seven so far she's sewn over twenty thousand kilts most of them at her studio in edinburgh but she works on them everywhere in her car at home in bed even while on jury duty in court so what about. the question on the court but there let me.

2:51 am
and then you know we had underwear. new underwear no underwear. and that's why you never let anybody border yet. by the time elaine scared retire she hopes to have made thirty thousand kilts and she surely looks well on her way to meeting that goal. o. ne another ten thousand wore to go. now a stand up paddle boarding has been around since the forty's in europe but there are many people who thought about taking their animals out on the boat with them well it seems the idea is growing around the world so we finished the show today with a fly on the wall look at how a listing goes down with a group of canines and they're right on a jam and. here's
2:52 am
a sport that can be enjoyed by man and animals when their masters take to the water these beaches go along for the wrong please. stand up paddle boarding with dogs has become trendy. but before they hit the water canine and master need to practice on dry land. why. the concept is simple if the dog gets on the board he or she gets a treat. you really an exercise in obedience. i was trying to it was really quite taxing for the dogs because they have to use their heads and they're standing on a wobbly surface so they really have to trust the person they're on the board with and. some find that easier than others. and i'm not at us here at all and some need

a little helping hand at first but he's done it and lots of the praise. things are going swimmingly for these four to. only literally is having some trouble for her the tour is a washout. and sometimes after the dogs have done their part it's their owner's turn. but. while the humans are struggling to keep their balance henry engages in a fight with his reflection. at first most paddle boarders have just one goal not to fall in. both schools going while the dog hasn't fallen in the water remar importantly i haven't died. this year. the hardest thing was standing up and then standing in not falling in and keeping your balance i thought he jumped in.
2:54 am
all of this but is of but even if iraq the board a bit he stays on it's great. course of the place apart they know they can't go chasing ducks and then everything goes smoothly. while his master is hard at work peppered take cities. this which seems to be enjoying himself to. new zealand just. look this way leo likes it it's fun it's something new to go paddle boarding with a dog and then. it turns a solo activity into a team sport. the feeling kind will import the concept from california and started his own club near hamburg it's come to think as we all loved it from the start that we gave dogs the confidence to stand on the board made their owners so proud now they take their dogs out on the water. with the best of all going stand up paddle
